Jesy Nelson looks all partied out as she enjoys night on town with her pals

Jesy Nelson looked bleary eyed on a night out with pals in London.

As lockdown has begun to ease, the pop star was celebrating her successes with her friends at at MNKY HSE in London over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The former Little Mix star sat in the back of a taxi with her hand on her face clutching her signature Von Dutch bag.

Earlier on, she had enjoyed dinner during which she shared a video of an extravagant looking seafood platter.

The star had ditched her platinum blonde mane for a gorgeous chocolate shade which she styled with her beloved Von Dutch jeans and eye-catching top.

Jesy, 29, has had a busy few weeks after recently announcing she had gone solo having left the mega successful girl group.

The singer, who left the band citing mental health issues, signed a record deal just five months after she left the band.

Speaking about her shock exit for the first time this month, she admitted she had decided to go after reaching “breaking point” while filming a music video.

She split from the pop group back in December as she planned to take some time out of the spotlight to focus on her mental health and wellbeing – with the first 2020 coronavirus lockdown playing a part in her decision to walk away from Little Mix.

She told her 7.9million followers: “So excited to announce that I’ve signed my first ever solo record deal with @polydorrecords@universalmusicgroup.

Ahead of the announcement, it was reported Jesy and Little Mix “cut financial ties” before the group’s tour.

The trio apparently have been set to make five million from the gigs and if Jesy remained a director in the business she too would have repeated the rewards.

Jesy skipped the BRITs but she still won a gong with Little Mix as they went down in history as the first girl group to win the Best British Band.

In a kind gesture, the girls paid a sweet tribute to the star who left the band.

Leigh-Anne said on stage: “We have been together for 10 years it’s been the best years of our life, we have had so much fun.

“We want to start by thanking out incredible fans. Of course Jesy. It’s not easy being a female in the UK pop industry.

“We’ve seen misogyny, white male dominance and lack of diversity.”

Jesy also took to Instagram to show support for her former band mates and congratulated them on the win.

Recently, the songstress revealed for the first time she was at “breaking point” on a video shoot for Sweet Melody.

She told Cosmopolita n: “We’d been in lockdown, and it was the first time I could have a break and be at home around people that I love. It was the happiest I’d ever felt and I didn’t realise that until I went back to work. I immediately became a different person.

“I had anxiety. Whenever we have a music video I put an enormous amount of pressure on myself to try and lose weight. I have a fear of looking back on the camera. If I don’t like what I see, I find it so hard to be in front of the camera and feel amazing and perform.

“I’d been in lockdown, and I’d put on a bit of weight but I didn’t care. And they said, ‘you’ve got a music video in a couple of weeks’ and I just panicked. I went on this extreme diet, with bloody shakes, and tried to eat as little as possible. On the day of the Sweet Melody video I had a panic attack on set because I didn’t look how I wanted to look and I found it so hard to just be happy and enjoy myself.

“There’s a scene in Sweet Melody I’m not in because that’s when I had a panic attack and broke down. I was like, ‘I just want to go home.’”
